Start From Where You Are: Drawing for All Levels

Classes are currently on hold, but I do look forward to teaching again soon. If you would be interested in any of the classes below, visit the contact page and drop me a line. Consider joining my low-volume mailing list to learn when new classes are posted. To all my students, thank you for your patience. I look forward to meeting up again.



In any endeavor, we start from where we are and progress from there. Drawing is no different.

If you have never picked up a piece of charcoal in your life, or if you’re rediscovering the pencil after years of focusing on technical processes in your art, this course is designed to meet you where you are. Together in a small, supportive, and friendly group, we will refresh, renew, or start from scratch, improving our ability to see and respond to the world through still-life drawing and fun, innovative, drawing exercises.

I bring teaching passion and experience to this class. I taught for many years in the Foundation Program at the Boston Architectural Center, and have taught both adults and teenagers through continuing education and out of my own studio. But don’t worry, I haven’t forgotten what it feels like to be a student, sometimes confident and sometimes overwhelmed and often both in the same day. This course is designed to help you develop your skills no matter what they are when you enter the classroom.

Classes are geared toward beginners, and the more experienced if you feel your skills might be “rusty.” If you want more practice, you are welcome to register for repeat sessions.

All necessary supplies are provided, including paper, pencils, charcoal, drawing fixative, and use of easels. Just bring yourself, your curiosity, and your desire to draw. Students are also welcome to bring other non-toxic supplies for experimenting with as well.
